The goal of the SMPS Parent Association (PA) is to foster and grow a school and parish community rooted in faith that supports each other through the joys and milestones of life as well as the sadness and challenges it presents. We believe that, by creating opportunities and activities, the school community will serve as a family environment whose nature will be to encourage, support, and take care of each other. This can be accomplished through existing programs, as well as through new programs and activities that draw on the knowledge and help of others. These activities will strengthen and forge relationships, raise important funding for the school, and create a supportive network of members. In turn, this will fulfill the mission and ultimately support the school as we mutually work together to raise our children.

How can you help? How can you be a part of our SMPS Parent Association Community?
We welcome the involvement of parents, grandparents, aunts, uncles and friends of the parish and school. The only requirement is the completion of Diocesan-mandated Virtus Training, which is a very easy process. We will gladly help you with this. Please take a few minutes to review the volunteer form and check off where you might be able to help. Together we can make SMPS a better place!!
